I’ve been wondering/pondering about the often natural or  implausible and sometimes ridiculous instances where undraped female torsos are included in a photograph (or painting or sculpture). The subject has probably been exhaustively covered in the literature I am sure. So this is just me thinking about it in isolation. Attached is an example. It is a painting but such examples are all over. Any thoughts on the topic?

They're looking less and less tolerable to me as time goes on. I have some old photos that now look kind of gratuitous and hence exploitative.

The sort of thing the painting you showed as an example has always struck me as weird. And yeah, playing to the male gaze, exploitative.

Let's not even get into cherubs!
